29th January 2024 – LSEG Loan Connector and iLex have deepened the integration between the two platforms, bringing the data-to-trading connectivity to the next level. Now, users can search liquidity and counterparties on iLex for facilities displayed on LPC news or data.

iLex is the next-gen loan distribution platform offering banks, debt advisors and institutional lenders access to global loan markets and a large network of investors, deal workspaces, advanced investor intelligence and market analytics.

A New Way to Actively Source Loans

The enhanced connectivity between LPC and iLex platforms makes LPC data and news even more actionable and provide users with a new way to source deal opportunities and create new connections in the market.

One Click to Navigate from Market Data to Secondary Trading

Clicking “Trade on iLex” from loan tables or news in Loan Connector navigates users to the iLex platform, where they can be matched and chat with potential counterparties.

This functionality has been expanded to news, company pages and DealScan reports, where it is also available as a search parameter under “Trading Partners”. It now covers EMEA loans, in addition to APAC loans.

“This integration contributes to LPC and iLex’s shared vision to make loan markets more efficient and liquid by providing market data that are actionable and directly available from distribution workflows,” said Bertrand Billon, CEO and Founder of iLex. “We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership with LPC to bring innovative solutions and more connectivity to the market.”
